From Today’s Revised Common Lectionary reading . . .
Therefore we must pay greater attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it. For if the message declared through angels was valid, and every transgression or disobedience received a just penalty, how can we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? Heb 2:1-3 (NRSV)
We begin convention, each of us carrying the Gospel message with us. May we all strive to pay greater attention to it, allowing us to escape what binds us.
